This is such an easy recipe for chocolate mousse, it is so simple to make with only 4 ingredients and you can use any chocolate you like.
This chocolate mousse is a perfect dinner party dessert to share with your family and friends. You can serve it in individual glasses or you can serve it in one large bowl.
There is only four ingredients in this chocolate mousse: cream, eggs, chocolate and brown sugar. I like to use dark chocolate in my chocolate mousse but this recipe would also work very well with white or milk chocolate. If you're looking for an egg-free version, check out my Milk Chocolate Egg-Free Mousse.
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE:
To make this chocolate mousse you whisk the eggs with the brown sugar, pour in the melted chocolate and fold through the whipped cream. Before melting the chocolate remember to finely grate two tablespoons and set it aside, this is for garnish on top at the end of the recipe.
This mousse is best served after at least 4 hours of chilling time and can be kept for up to two days in the fridge. I also have a delicious recipe for chocolate mousse with raspberry sauce.

Can you please send me the baked raspberry cheesecake? I just seen it but I was to slow
To get it. Thank you
Hi there, it has just been published. 🙂 https://vjcooks.com/baked-raspberry-cheesecake/
Do you this mousse (which is divine and my fave) work being used in a chocolate mousse cake between layers?
Unfortunately, I think it would be too soft and would spill out the sides. You could try putting a layer on the base of the cake in the tin, then setting in the fridge and repeating for the next few layers. But perhaps the mousse from my https://vjcooks.com/chocolate-mousse-cake/ would be better for this type of layering.
Hi! I would love to know what the substitute would be for brown sugar? Just caster sugar?
Yes caster sugar would be fine. I would use a 1:1 ratio. So frustrating not being able to get brown sugar right now.
Hi is it ok to eat the egg without cooking it?
My recommendation is to use fresh and high-quality eggs. At the end of the day, it is a personal choice though. Pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems are advised to avoid them but in general, there is an extremely low chance of contracting salmonella from fresh, high quality eggs.
